this morning, i'm guessing. >>> people in india are getting the keys to the cheapest car in the world. how i remember this. what does it mean for the u.s. auto industry. clark howard breaks down how the new car might help your wallet in the future. >> the nano car, the world's cheapest automobile is now in people's driveways in india. this car you can buy in india for $2500. that's right a full four-door car seats four people you like a fifth you don't, is now available and selling like crazy. you may wonder, why am i telling you about a car that's only available in india? big news, this car just passed the european union safety and crash test, a car somewhat similar to ours and europeans are already buzzing they're going to be able to buy a car, even with the modifications for european will end up being somewhere around $3500. what about us? i want you to know, for us, this is a clear trend that we are going to see, in the next few years, cars cheaper than you ever imagined, about the price of a motorcycle. i'm clark howard. for more ways to save, go to cnn do cn cnn.come/clarkhoward. >> cl
. if we do the decent thing, the nuclear arsenal will be hard. greta: and do what? india is next door. they hate each other. what can we do? >> the military is called the steel skeleton because it is the one institution that holds the country together. we need to make sure does not turn against us. it is not anything we can do in a few days or few months. if we lose the struggle and the radicals takeover, they have dozens or hundreds of nuclear weapons to use against india. the stakes in pakistan are very high, higher than afghanistan or iraq. greta: we hear the nuclear arsenal is safe and under control. i do know why, but i do not feel comfortable with that. can the committee that is true? he was like the walmart and nuclear weapons. he was giving a clear weapons all over the world to north korea, syria. he is a hero in number three. the worst thing they did was give him a house arrest. >> >> i dealt with that when those in the government. from a technical point of view, it is unlikely you will have an accidental detonation of nuclear weapons. greta: i'm not worried about that. >> th
we do? i know the nuclear arsenal is terrifying, and you've got india next door and they hate each other, but what can we do? >> well, i think in pakistan, the military, which the people there are called the steel skelton, because it's the one institution of government that really holds the country together. we have to make sure that does not turn against us. that's not going to be anything we can do in a few days or a few months. it's a long-term proposition. if we lose that struggle, though, and the radicals take over in pakistan, they've got dozens, maybe hundreds of nuclear weapons to use against india or to give the terrorist groups that can be used around the world. the stakes are very high around the world, i think today higher than afghanistan or iraq. >> can you -- i mean, we hear from our government that the nuclear arsenal is safe, that it's under control. i don't know why, but i don't feel comfortable with that. can you convince me that that's true? i know that even a.q. khan, is almost like the devil, like the wal-mart of nuclear weapons. he's giving nuclear weapons al
are the jobs? so the president has gone to india to tell people -- indiana to tell people that they are one of the states that will be getting quite a bit of the stimulus monday, that there will ├žbe incentives available for te building of batteries and battery-powered cars. that is what he is there to say. that part of the country is suffering heavily. unemployment in the area is near 20%, just about double the rest of the country. as we prepare for his remarks, let us go to our white house correspondent. mike emanuel, what else do we expect to hear from the president? >> president obama is bringing great news to the country -- company. they will begin a $39 million grant work on manufacturing electric trucks. that means when the company is fully manufacturing them, it will be able to create more jobs in the area. the company manufactures rv's. obviously, that industry took a huge hit when gasoline prices shot up, and the recession hit hard. the company had to let go a lot of people, manufacturers went out of business, and then navistar came in, but the area is still suffering from unempl
floodwaters. at least 10 people are missing there. >>> there is another dark situation unfold anything india today as police and volunteers seven for the bodies on a scene of a devastating landslide. at least 43 people were killed when heavy rains triggered this slide in remote villages. searchers are having a tough time finding the remaining victims because of poor conditions there. >>> closer to home this morning, divers are returning to the murky waters of hudson river to resume the search for victims and the wreckage of saturday's mid-air collision between a small plane and a sight-seeing helicopter. all nine people involved were killed. and this morning the national transportation safety board begins the effort to find out why. nbc's michelle franzen has the very latest. >> reporter: one day after the horrific midair collision, crews lifted the wreckage of the sight-seeing helicopter. they loaded it onto a barge so investigators can search for evidence. >> the helicopter sustained significant damage. they're going to be conducting further examination of the wreckage. >> reporter: just n
medicine. last week after working for years only with the generic drug companies principally in india and south africa, we announced our first big agreement with a large pharmaceutical company, pfizer, the biggest of all, has agreed to work with us to cut the price by 60% of the only drug we know that is affected at treating tubular chlorosis with people who have had aids for a long time. in other cases, all this medicine almost makes the conditions were spread half a million people die from this disease who have aids. the interactions of the madison and the t.b. medicine is often not good. the fact that they were willing to cut the price 60% will save a couple hundred thousand lives a year within two years. that is answering the how question. we tried to do the same thing in climate change where we are working with 40 cities around the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by retrofitting public housing, or big public buildings, or changing the street lights, or putting in new led streetlights in los angeles, or making ports more efficient, are working on better public transportat
-- the manufacturing jobs that were in america and were moved to countries like india and china. i think that they are experiencing an industrial revolution much like what we saw in the 20th-century. i think that they are developing a middle-class while we are losing our middleclass. i also think that for an economy to do well, there has to be a strong middle-class. that is indicative when you look at consumer spending indexes. we just don't have the money. we don't have the dollars because we don't have manufacturing jobs that developed are middle-class. guest: that is exactly right. that is the essence of the book, which is that china and india have replicated the success in developing this industrialized economy. by opening of their labor force to more exploitation, it does speak to the myth of gdp. you have a growth but poverty grows at the same time. the loss of manufacturing jobs is really such a central element to both this recession and the declining living standards in terms of the exploitation of people, but declining marriage rates, unraveling of our society and many other cou

visit to india in 2006, david cameron said that he believed it was time for britain and india to forge a new special relationship, focusing particularly on fighting terrorism, protecting the environment, and globalization. india is also a leading member of the commonwealth, which has been valued on to the labour -- which as been devalued in the labour gouvernment. it is extraordinary diversity offers some straight, a unique network of 53 countries spanning five continents with 30% of the world's population. we believe the commonwealth is a tool to be picked up and used more often, to help dialogue and conflict prevention, taking a leading role in addressing state failure by coordinating up future rehabilitation package for its former member, zimbabwe. get the commonwealth is not the only group of countries where we can recreate historic connections on a new modern basis. i have long argued that britain should embark on the elevation of its links with many countries of the middle east in the gulf. not only diplomatically, but in matters of culture, education, commerce, and security. thi
type that india is looking to purchase. >> reporter: and the same type that now functioned last year, killing 20 people onboard. eric wortham works for the naval institute and wrote a book on the world's combat ships. he said by sending subs to the east coast. >> they're showing our submar e submarines are still viable, our ships are powerful. and this is why you can still view russian weapons as something you can purchase. >> reporter: russian subs haven't been this close to the u.s. coast in over ten years. >> there's abeffon effort to pr force around the world. >> i tell you no one is alarmed by it because nobody is. >> reporter: this is about making money, not war. india used to buy planes from russia but inked a $2 billion for the seller of this aircraft, the seller, american company, boeing. >> russia is concerned that foreign customers are not looking to them anymore as a leader in the export market. >> these subs are in international rat waters and paf regular control. india is releasing two of the subs with the option to buy. joe, kiran. >> chris lawrence, thank you so much
and india you have to have a strategy for economic growth and economic to filament in a period of considerable challenge. our argument is if we want to build a safe prosperous and free future we need to create the most productive most creative most entrepreneurial pro-market economy that runs on smart and effective economic regulation. let me be clear. i believe if you set out and say well what maximize their are ways to do that. you said what maximize the number of small businesses created by small business there are ways to do that. if you said how can i have the most continuous process of innovation we know how to it just doesn't fit the political elite definition of the future which is high techs, bigger shocker c and politicians entered. so, long term we're going to need budgetary reform legislation. it's interesting the last congress more than a dozen bills introduced to establish entitlement and budget commission's but if all the legislation did was have the same old conversation within the same old frame work you in fact wouldn't achieve very much. you end up with a com
wonder because they are on the other side of pakistan. it would be a good strategic movement if india made the move towards bin laden, if he is still alive. another question, perhaps we are already monitoring bin laden? perhaps our intelligence has him on the phone all the time? could that be possible? guest: i wish it were, but it would speak to some kind of nefarious plot. if he were on the phone and we have not killed him. if we are listening to him on the phone we can geo-locate him and he would be yesterday's news. so, i seriously doubt we're listening to him. secondly, part of the problem we have in afghanistan is we have already allowed a large indian presence, both economically, and they are doing a lot of construction with people dressed as civilians but who are really military engineers. people in the u.s. do not realize the degree of paranoia between two nuclear-armed countries, pakistan and india. to allow an indian military forces into pakistan would turn the pakistan knees entirely away from us. -- the pakistanis away from us. it is interesting as an idea, but in the lon
-- question was on the geography between pakistan and india. is it critical that the united states try to play a role? that's on really problematic with respect to the indians in terms of defusing tensions between india and pakistan. is that outside 9 postal -- the portfolio of this group? >> it is outside the portfolio of my job. on the other hand, i am in constant touch with the indians. i met with the indians continually. the new ambassador in washington and i have had dinner recently and she and i are in close touch. i go to indio whenever the schedule permits. i stress we're completely transparent. the secretary of state and my close colleague assistant secretary for south asia, central asian affairs bob blake and i were in india recently and the indians are a major factor in the region. they're the dominant power. improveb -- improving u.s.-indian relations ha been a continual goal of the last three u.s.strations, all which i think have been successful in that regard, starting with president clinton's trip in 2000. i will keep the indians fully informed and i have an indian counterpart w
korean ship was spotted by indian officials by india in the bay. the north korean ship illegally dropped anchor and being spotted the north korean ship then tried to escape. the end i can't understand coast guard gave chase. chasing the north korean ship for six hours before they finally caught it the ship was then boarded, searched, any nuclear weapons and technology found? no. just sugar. 16,000 tons of sugar. here is why this is so curious and so important that ship was allegedly bound for the middle east. as you can see, the ship was very close to myanmar, an ally of north korea. there have been reports that north korea's illegally helping myanmar build a nuclear reactor right now indian intelligence officers continue to search that ship and crew. it could be they were just playing with the rest of the world on this one. sugar, no nukes, we will let you know as we learn more information. up now, you know the country has been catastrophically slammed with mortgage problems. there is news tonight, bad news. we may only be in the eye of the storm this is fun. secretary of state hillary
the economy, reduce the number of jobs, weaken the businesses, guarantee that china and india will outcompete us in of the world market and the only alternative to that is real change. you're not going to be able to get cleverly from here to a better future, as long as the system, whether it's at the state level or the federal level is dominated by structures of special interest, whose entire future is a function of bigger bureaucracies, more spending and higher taxes, so i hope i've at least made 18 nibble case that what we need is a dramatic level of change. what i would like to do is take a five minute break and come back for c-span, but i appreciate you giving us this much time to outline the initials, and then we'll start with questions right after the break. [applause] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> our liver coverage of this forum on the government budget process will continue in a moment. former house speaker newt gingrich will take questions from the audience an we'll continue our live coverage in just a moment. in the meantime, here's a conversation about the
by the inhabit tants of countries as far flown as nigeria, egypt, mesopotamia, turkey, india, china, greece, united kingdom, north america, south america including the greenland eskis. in fact, the two vernacular words that survid in plato's description of atlantis were found to be in sound and meaning -- were found in sound and me meang to have been directly derived from the language environment. so too were 90% of words used by adam andis household especially names of people and places. and there are many. our research includes the origin and meanings of symbols used in every religion and sacd literature all over the world. in these we found that hebrew bible, the kabbalah of the hebrews and the chinese, the hindus and the recently discovered egyptian christian bible was of immense importance in revealing lost knowledge. wherever we looked we found evidence confirming the claims by geneticsists that all mankind came from sub-harrah africa. and it was previously believed that adam and eve were descended from east african lucy. our findings revealed it was not east african but a nigeria are
promoting a film about racial profiling. people were really upset about this in india. the indian government said it is taking this up with the u.s. embassy there. a u.s. customs official told the associated press that the questioning was part of a routine process. >>> a group the veterans got the welcome they missed when they returned home from vietnam. this special ceremony was held at ft. campbell, kentucky. many vets say when they originally came back from vietnam, they were often met with angry protestors and not welcome home ceremonies. a spokesman for ft. campbell says he hopes there are more ceremonies like this one at other bases. >>> a possible tornado ripped up trees and tossed around cars. this is in southern florida. according to local reports, 23 homes in cape coral were damaged. there were also three fires because of lightning. neighbors met yesterday cleaning up the damage. >> the power was out. we couldn't close the garage door and stuff was flying in the garage and sucking out of the garage. it was crazy. >> as everything swirled and slapped around, things were over here. t
. host: hobart, indiana. george on the india line. caller: good morning, gentlemen. glad you took my call. i just don't understand for one thing, mr. pappas. how come there is no flexibility between the parties when i have -- my wife and i have two insurance companies, employer insurance companies and we are consumed almost virtually 20% of our gross income, we are not talking about shared costs. or pharmaceutical or anything catastrophic that would happen to us. we are still going to be placed into bankruptcy. why isn't there some sort of consideration? why can't the two chambers of the house come to some sort of compromise to where we are put in a sunset or triggering mechanism to where we could try this new system of universal healthcare coverage? i don't want to use socialism because it is such a key word, a buzzword for a lot of medicaid and medicare people. they think that they are not part of the socialist medicine group. guest: what george just shared with us, i think, is very important and it reminds me of my parents' own situation. my parents live in massachusetts where they ha
are to impose sanctions to try to turn off the trade taps of this country. china and russia and india continue to trade with this regime. it's had limited effects. now, there's talk of whether there's time to repraise it and perhaps it's the beginning of a channel or dialogue opening up. he managed to meet the man in charge. it's significant they allowed him to meet her. >> all right. we appreciate you hopping on the horn with us. we'll check in with you, again. jim webb is not on a official state department mission. he serves on a subcommittee. still, he's a high ranking u.s. official. he did get the white house blessing to go on this trip, even though he is not going for the president or the state department. it was breaking news here, betty. this american, this saga, a weird saga that started in may. >> he's on a mission from god to save her. i think something dan said that was important, he's facing a lot of ill bszs, physical illnesses. he had several siezures while waiting for the trial to end. perhaps it was part of the whole grand scheme. imagine what would have happened if he had to s
? demand from growing countries like china and india? sophisticated financial speculators exploiting small changes in markets to make money? ali, the government now wants to rein in on excessive speculation in these important markets. >> the commodity futures trading commission which regulates the oil industry held hearings this week about speculation in the energy markets and to see whether new restrictions would need to be created. speculative traders have been blamed by some critics, as you said, christine, for causing the record runup in oil prices last summer. but it's important to realize that speculating, the "s" word is not necessarily a bad word. in fact, it happens all the time. you probably speculated whether you know it or not. let me show you a little about this. let's get that out of here, the "s" word. you want to buy a house. you are buying a house on the hope that it's going to go up in value. you are also going to live in that house. so it's a purchase. you're getting some use of that house. but you're speculating when you buy a house. that's on a personal level. airlines
, of the scope of atrocities that were going on india down. the other thing that you, after john kerry gave his testimony to the senate in 1971, remember, vietnam veterans against the war. after his testimony, the nixon administration, we now know, worked closely with another veterans group that eventually came the veterans, that's kind of the ring, the senate, that worked closely with them to put out a different story to the public. that these guys were liars and fabricators, and in fact, the army records don't show that they were liars. >> thank you. >> incidentally, you mentioned john kerry, you know as probably most of you recall in 2004, he was attacked by the swift boaters when he was running for president for his testimony in 1971, war crimes were a common occurrence in the non. and it was an effective attack that helped defeat him. but one of the people, one of the officers was part of a small group that collected these records in the pentagon is now a retired general, and a vocal opponent to the iraq war. in 2040 contacted the kerry campaign three times. he wanted to tell them that the

the same health care and food as boys. in india, for example, girls are less likely to be vaccinated that be boys and are take on the the hospital only when they are sicker. the girls in india from 1 to 5 years of age are 50% more likely to die than boys their age. in addition, ultra sound machines have allowed a pregnant woman to find out the sex of her own fetus and then get an abortion if it's female. the global statistics on the abuse of girls are numbing. it appears that more girls and women are now missing from the planet precisely because they are female than men were killed on the batting field in all of the wars of the 20th century. so with a new administration in power and with a female woman heading the state department, how should u.s. priorities on women's issues internationally change? guest: the secretary of state hillary clinton is doing a marvelous job of highlighting the issue of women's equality around the world. one thing that we need to do in this country is the united states senate needs to ratify the united nations women's convention, the convention on the elim
and india have had bad weather. so if you put that together, we're seeing shubert prices in the market hit 28-year highs. so a lot of action. major companies like general mills and kraft wrote a letter saying they need a reduction in tariffs on imports of sugar, and this is the reason why. they think that by the end of the year on supply will only have a 13-day supply of sugar in the united states. they are worried, and having to handle some of these higher prices. if these prices, some say, do not come down, we will have to have them on to consumers. and of course we're in a recession, and that is not good. again, what these companies want to do right now, they can import sugar and do not have to pay a tariff. what they want to do is be allowed to import even more so they can help mitigate some higher prices, but when demand is up and supply is down, you are not really going to avoid those higher prices. what will happen is that as consumers, we will pay more, or you will see more artificial sweeteners, like corn syrup, being used in certain products. so we see prices come down, because i
, to countries like china and india and they market that. that obviously wasn't a very good marketing tool yesterday at that air show. the squadron leader of the sequoia 27 killed on impact to the ground. jane: to the city of chicago now where things have shut down. the city has shut down. we're not kidding here. jon: chicago is closed? jane: the budget cuts there have forced the city really to tell all nonessential workers stay home today, we're not going to pay you so don't show up. that means no garbage pickup, most of the city offices are closed, libraries won't open up. steve brown is essential to us. he's on the job. explain to me here who is furloughed. >> well, it's basically all public employees, minus those that work for the fire, police department, and emergency services. you hit a lot of the majors. garbage isn't going to be collected today, senior centers are close. medical and health clinics run by the city are not open. and city hall is shut down. it affects all of those folks. jane: i hate to say this but if you're looking to the future, chicago may not be alone in this. i
for " the new york times." you traveled with president obama with to india recently. the headline was, obama visits economically depressed region. we were talking to the mayor about jobs and job creation beard what was your take away from the trip and the challenges? guest: we want to the county, not that far from my home town of toledo, ohio, so it felt sort of like going home. it was a relatively small group of 200 people, but most of them were people who had gotten their jobs back after being laid off, in part due, they think, to stimulus money from the federal government in that the stimulus encouraged netstar to come in and buy their own company that had gone bankrupt. host: over the last few weeks as we were beginning to see some upbeat language from the treasury department and the fed about the economy, we keep hearing concerns by economists that this might be a jobless recovery. what does that mean, and how can you have a recovery without more jobs? guest: and that we start from a lower base. we have gone down so far in what some call the great recession, that you can recover, but yo
